Vidimote - the Safari extension for advanced playback and speed controls for web videos - is once again updated with useful improvements.
Here's what's new in version 1.8:
Skip and PiP button on top of videos
The new Skip and Picture-in-Picture (PiP) buttons are shown for the first five seconds directly on top of videos, so you can skip unwanted videos or enter Picture-in-Picture with a single click or tap.
Automatic Speed Lock
We noticed a growing number of websites that are periodically resetting video playback speed to 1x - completely on their own.
To mitigate this problem, Vidimote 1.8 now comes with Automatic Speed Lock, which allows speed changes made by you, the user - but blocks unasked speed changes made by the websites themselves.
To make settings easier to discover, we added a settings button in Vidimote's popup to open the settings in the Vidimote app.
Vidimote 1.8 is now available for just 2.99 US$ / 2.99 € for the Universal Purchase, which includes both the iOS/iPadOS and macOS versions.
The update is free for existing users.
